Monster Likes #2

Welcome to the second Monster Likes of 2011! Every Saturday, I list my favorite selection of posts I found throughout bloggy land over the past week.
If one of your posts is listed below and you want the badge, just shoot me an email or leave me a comment and I’ll send you the badge to put on your post.  

So here are my favorite posts of the past week:

Emilie over at Purple Carrots & Fairy Smoke had a cool post all about using plastic bags to make these very hip purses! Go check it out.

Shell from Things I Can’t Say had the coolest tweet of the week! Have you seen this video about Nicole Eggert? You need to see it:
Nicole Eggert: Real Women Gain Weight! (VIDEO)

Missy over at Wonder Friend wrote about how you just can’t prepare for the emotional part of motherhood in her post The Heart Test.

Tiffany at posted a post called Shit My Kid Says last May – I tweeted something about a discussion I started over in the Our Mommyhood Community at the Blog Frog (I’m a Community Leader there), and she tweeted me back that it’s one of her favorite posts. I went and read it and it is hilarious! Then I realized that I had commented on it way back last May – funny to reread a comment I left so long ago.

The Flying Chalupa has a permanent spot on my Monster Likes posts. I was so excited to roll out Monster Likes last week that I forgot to put her on the list. She will be here from now on. I love everything she writes, and I swear that every time I read a post I think “This is my new favorite Chalupa post”. So if you don’t know The Flying Chalupa, go now! You won’t be disappointed.

Favorite comment of the week from Tara at Bite The Bed Bugs about my The Toy Box Threw Up post:

“Wow. That looks familiar. Really cleaning up after my twins is like rearranging the deck chairs on the titanic. Utterly pointless.”
Tara, I SO relate!
And so it goes…
